    1. I can weld with an arc welder and .......
    2. an oxy-acetelyne torch.
    3. I taught welding at my first and second teaching jobs.
    4. I can wire a simple electrical circuit (no three way switches please!).
    5. I have bottle raised baby goats, baby kittens, baby possums, and a mockingbird. Well, the bird didn't use a bottle, but I had to hand feed him. I have also hand raised baby Umbrella cockatoos, blue and gold macaws, and cockatiels.
    6. I can (and have) bladed our 1/4 mile long driveway in blowing snow at 18 degrees with a 56 pound dog in my lap. At least she helped me stay warm - the tractor doesn't have a cab.
    7. I was named small-bore (.22) rifle shooting champ during my first year at Woodmen camp.
    8. My g-granddad died when I was a junior and my g-grandma died on his birthday that same year - spooky. She said she was tired and laid down on the couch and just left us.
    9. My gggg-grandpa was arrested during the Civil War as a spy. He was driving my gggg-grandmother's sister into enemy camps. She had 25+ pounds of stuff hidden in her skirts. They were imprisoned and then released, only to start things back up again once they were home.
    10. I worked 4 jobs at one time during my junior year in college - I worked for the state education department with a grant to deal with paperwork during the day when I didn't have class, I worked with a grant for the Department of Insurance and rewrote (retyped) the National Electric Code evenings, I woked at home on the weekends in fast food, and I worked that summer as a camp counselor.
